The Espresso Martini cocktail, also called "Espresso Vodka", always consists of vodka, coffee liqueur, sugar and fresh expresso coffee. It was created in 1984 by Dick Bradsell, a London bartender.

Dick said that a famous model once entered Fred's Bar and asked him for "something that's gonna wake me up, then fuck me up". The cocktail was then called the "stimulant", later it was renamed Espresso Martini.
